Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory veer closer to the dreamy sensuality of Seventh Tree here than their glam electro-pop outings. Tales of Us has a stately pace and woozy beauty, with cinematic orchestration of swaying strings over acoustic guitar or mossy cello (though "Thea" has the beats and bass to give your sub-woofer a work out).

The peculiar flip-flop trajectory of Goldfrapp’s career continues with Tales of Us, on which they eschew the electropop of 2010’s Head First in favour of a more sensuous, intimate style that owes much to Kate Bush.

Who is the real Marina Diamandis? Is she the emancipated songstress from her debut; the girl who stepped off the quirky bus driven by Regina Spektor? Or is she the archetypal, commercial paradox of her recent album, where she delved even further into the complexities of womanhood? Her apparent glee and fortitude at being both perhaps show that her talents belong on the pedestal of a theatre rather than at a gig.

Fashion: Be haus proud
Monday 28 November 2011
Goldfrapp’s Little Noise set was always going to be a religious experience - performed on an altar, perfumed with incense and presided over by the vicar of St John’s Hackney, who is up by the organ enjoying the show and the view.

In a mocked-up Main Street in the middle of a field in Sussex, several strikingly well-dressed women are queueing impatiently for admission to the catwalk show in the Fashion Pavilion. Some are clad in the khaki uniform of the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry (the famous Fanys), some are in land-girl slacks with their hair knotted inside red bandannas. Others are squeezed into tight rayon skirts that accentuate their Monroe hips, or floral cotton blouses with embroidered trim that their grandmothers might have considered a little fussy back in 1948.

In T in the Park's 17th year, it was Eminem, making his only UK festival appearance of the year, who gave the three-day event its centrepiece. Despite taking to the stage around 40 minutes late, Marshall Mathers gave those who had paid his fee their money's worth, more or less. It felt like all 80,000 festival-goers were squeezed into a packed-to- the-burger-vans main arena on Saturday to see him perform a set that included hits like "The Real Slim Shady", "Stan", "Lose Yourself" and "The Way I Am", albeit some of them only in medley format, while the appearance of his mob-handed entourage D12 for a guest spot was welcome but – considering they played elsewhere on the bill –not a surprise.
